This program gave me a new perspective on college that I never had up until this point. Georgetown is an amazing school in an amazing city, and this program showed me that.
The program offers so much–from the off-site visits to the daily lectures and the on campus activities. The lectures were interesting, meeting new people was great and the off-site visits were interactive and intriguing.
This is a course that I would definitely recommend as both Georgetown and the professors were very hands-on and provided a great pre-university experience.
